Here is what you need to know on Tuesday, July 6:
Markets remain in a record-breaking mood as traders show no sign of 4th of July hangovers. GOOGL surged to a record high close on Friday, and most mega tech names remain at or close to all-time highs. Apple (AAPL) is surging nicely through some key resistances, the latest being $137 as it too targets new highs, see more. Another mega tech name heads for the moon and looks to get there before AMC as Jeff Bezos officially hands over the CEO reins to Andy Jassy while Bezos heads for a spaceflight later this month on his Blue Origin venture.
Chinese names are not expected to perform well as the market reopens on Tuesday following the July 4 celebrations. China is conducting further crackdowns with the emphasis this time on DiDi Global (DIDI), who launched on the NYSE only a week ago. The ridesharing stock dropped as much as 25% in Tuesday's premarket as China conducts a cybersecurity review of the company and new app downloads are banned in China. Most Chinese-related stocks are down in Tuesday's premarket, and Alibaba (BABA) investors get a sense of deja-vu.
